5 mg/kg reduced birthweight by 11%, and three doses given weekly reduced birthweight by 19–25% [9]. The effects of more modest levels of antenatal glucocorticoid exposure on growth rates are not clear (discussed below), but could contribute to early suppression of adrenal function in the newborn [5]. Glucocorticoid Deficiency in the Low-Birthweight Newborn Low circulating cortisol levels and adrenocortical insufficiency during the first few postnatal days are particularly seen among ill very-low-birthweight (VLBW: Ͻ1,500 g) premature infants, and are a cause of hypotension that is resistant to volume and inotrope support [10, 11].

In that study, lower 11␤-HSD2 activity was also associated with increased umbilical artery resistance, and it is possible that lower enzyme activity might represent a stress response to other causes of fetal growth restraint [57]. Associations between common functional variants in the 11␤-HSD1 or 11␤-HSD2 genes [58] could further demonstrate the importance of 11␤-HSD activity to the links between fetal growth and long-term disease risks. Adrenal Function of Low-Birthweight Children 41 Programming of Adrenal Androgen Production The adrenal androgens, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and DHEAsulfate (DHEAS), are produced by the adrenal zona reticularis [59], and circulating DHEAS levels provide a convenient marker of rate of adrenal androgen production [60].

Previous studies in boys showed a positive relationship between age at onset of puberty and BMI [49]. 5 years in SGA boys were comparable to AGA boys. CA/PA ϫ 100%, however, was Ͼ100 in SGA boys indicating that a certain pubertal stage was reached relatively late for their calendar age. Animal studies also show a delayed onset of puberty in IUGR male rats [41]. The clinical relevance of such delay is not known yet. However, an association between male gonadal dysfunction and severely reduced fetal growth has been long recognized [50, 51].
